Keeping it Small and Simple


YouTube — buggy?

Filed under: Web Sites — Tags: , — Lorenzo E. Danielsson @ 04:04

I’m trying to take advantage of some of the features of YouTube, such as favorites, playlists and subscriptions. Is anybody else experiencing problems?

I have two playlists currently. Sometimes one of them doesn’t show up. Sometimes both do show up, but if I click on the second one, I get a “invalid ID” error. The playlist that usually does show up supposedly has six videos. But when I click on details, either two, four or six videos show up.

I am not able to favorite videos. Or rather, I can favorite them, and the little AJAX-powered notification tells me it has been favorited. Yet, my favorites remains empty.

I have one subscription. Sometimes it shows up as a subscription, sometimes it doesn’t. Same thing with my history. Some videos get added to the history, some don’t.

It does seem to make a difference which link I use to get to the various features. Which brings me to another issue: why the hell do I get different user interfaces depending on which link I use? Wouldn’t it be better to standardize on a single UI?

In conclusion, my YouTube experience could be a lot better. I am the only one noticing this?

Edit: my spelling, buggy.
